BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – On Friday, the Ansarallah forces made significant progress in the Marib Governorate after a relatively quiet month on the ground in Yemen.
According to a report from northern Yemen, the Ansrallah forces launched a big assault on the positions of the Yemeni government forces in the Maghdal Al-Jadaan District, which is the location of an imperative crossroad.
The Ansarallah forces were able to capture several areas in this district, including the villages of Al-Jurf and Naba’a Al-Olaya, after intense clashes with the Yemeni government troops.
The Yemeni government forces reportedly tried to launch a counter-attack against the Ansarallah Movement after the Saudi-led Coalition launched a number of airstrikes over the Marib Governorate; however, they were unsuccessful.
This new offensive by the Ansarallah Movement comes at a time of great friction between the pro and anti government forces, as the Yemeni peace talks have stalled.
